Canyon Introduces New Torque

UNRULY. UNBOUND. UNREAL. An innovative bike has to break the rules. It can’t be bound by convention or exist in your day-to-day “real world.” It should ll your dreams with mountains and make you rethink how and where you ride. Unruly. Unbound. Unreal. Sending huge gaps, bombing double-black trails and even pedalling up to drop […]

Canadian Custom: The Xprezo WUUU 650

Canada’s Xprezo bike company is hard to pin down.

We figure the reason is that the crew at Specialized is still totally enamored with their 29er offerings–and with good reason. Like we said in our S-Works […]

Giant flew us up to the picturesque region surrounding Pemberton, British Columbia to get some saddle time on their new enduro and downhill lineups for 2015. With British Columbia holding some of the most aggressive and remote riding in North America, it wouldn’t make sense for them to make it happen anywhere else. For the […]

Santa Cruz’s New Solo 27.5-Inch Trailbike

From Santa Cruz: Solo pushes further into the realms of 27.5″ possibilities. Developed using what we learned from Bronson, it takes the design platform in a different direction.  The low bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of progressive VPP suspension give Solo its snappy, nimble, ride.
